The York Theatre Company, in association with Riki Kane Larimer, presented the New York premiere of the award-winning Cagney, a high-stepping, explosive new musical about legendary star and the screen’s greatest tough-guy, James Cagney.
Cagney follows the actor from his humble beginnings in New York City's Lower East Side through his rise as a vaudeville song-and-dance man, to his superstardom in Hollywood. In this insightful and surprising musical journey, a brand new original score filled with showstopping song-and-dance numbers is augmented by George M. Cohan songs.
James Cagney, could do it all—sing, dance, play the bad guy, the good guy, the patriot, the gangster. Broadway's Robert Creighton stars, and leads a cast of six in this exciting new musical. Cagney has audiences cheering.
